All types of windows are a potential danger. It only takes seconds for an accident to happen. Whether in a private residential home with small children or a hotel or hospital, window safety is a serious concern that should be immediately addressed.
There are certain types of window that can easily be overlooked when it comes to safety. VELUX windows are a prime example of this. They are often located well out of harms way in an elevated position. Sometimes however, particularly in loft conversions or dormer style properties, they can be in low level ceilings and easy to reach sloping walls.

The Jackloc window restrictor has been used in buildings across the world. From huge commercial buildings to standard residential homes, the aim is the same, to prevent accidents. If you live in a property with VELUX windows that pose a potential risk, the Jackloc can help. Whether your windows are uPVC, aluminium, or timber, the Jackloc can be installed.
The Jackloc can be fitted to any type of window and VELUX windows are no exception. Its easy install design is user friendly and takes minutes to securely fix to your windows. It is attached directly to the window sash and window frame to restrict the opening arc. Depending on the type of Jackloc you choose, restriction can be permanent, push button operated or key operated.

VELUX windows are an excellent way to improve ventilation and maximise natural light intake in loft conversions and situations where standard windows are unsuitable. They should, however, always be treated the same way as any other windows in terms of potential risk.
